Bangladesh U-19s 85 for 3 (Zakir 27, Nazmul 21*) beat Zimbabwe U-19s 84 (Ives 22, Islam 4-18, Saha 2-14) by seven wickets
Left-arm spinner Ariful Islam took four wickets as Zimbabwe Under-19s were routed for 84, which Bangladesh Under-19s chased down with seven wickets and over 200 balls to spare, in the third Youth ODI in Chittagong.
This was Bangladesh Under-19s' fourth Youth ODI series win in 2015, after beating Sri Lanka and South Africa (home and away). The visitors were hurt by regular strikes with only three of their batsmen managing double figures; opener Jeremy Ives top-scoring with 22. Islam was assisted by offspinner Sanjit Saha who picked up two wickets while Abdul Halim, Mehedi Hasan Miraz, Saeed Sarkar and Saleh Ahmed Shawon all claimed one each.
Wicketkeeper Zakir Hasan ended the innings with five dismissals, becoming the third Bangladesh player after Mushfiqur Rahim and Nurul Hasan to achieve the feat in Youth ODIs.
Bangladesh's batsmen needed only 15.5 overs to complete the chase. Openers Pinak Ghosh and Saif Hassan were dismissed in 10.5 overs but Zakir Hasan and Nazmul Hossain took their side home.
